Play Cyberpunk 2077 now on Xbox in the UK by pretending you’re in New Zealand

Fans have found a simple trick to start playing Cyberpunk 2077 today in the UK, assuming you’ve already pre-ordered and installed it.

Cyberpunk 2077 is this Christmas’ most keenly awaited game but if the wait until tomorrow morning is just too much to bear then you can start playing it right now in the UK.

As with most modern games it’s been possible to pre-load Cyberpunk 2077 for days now, so most fans will already have it sitting on their hard drives, with Keanu Reeves ready to tell you off if you start playing it before the 10th.

But it is already the 10th in New Zealand – and probably other countries by the time you read this – so if you change your Xbox settings to seem like that’s where you live you can play the game right away.

The trick doesn’t work on the PlayStation 5 but if you press the Xbox button on your console and go to Settings it’s extremely easy to change your location.

Select All Settings, then System, and then Language & Location. Choose New Zealand (or anywhere else where it’s already December 10) and then just choose to Restart Now.

When your console comes back on it will think it’s in New Zealand and you can start playing right away.

This won’t necessarily work with all games in the future, but probably the majority, although you’ll likely want to go back to being from the UK when you make purchases on the Microsoft Store.

Given you’re only getting a few hours head start it’s unlikely CD Projekt will do anything to stop anyone and changing location won’t upset anything else on your console.
